Update:

Patch notes are here. Also, please remember that our regular maintenance hours will be longer tomorrow morning to get the Argon Queen patch in. Maintenance hours are from 6 - 9 AM PDT.

------------------------------------------------------------

The Argon Queen patch will be live on August 22 and the major contents of the patch (new skills, instances, battleground, etc.) are being updated on the Argon Queen Preview page. But in addition to those, we want to share more information on other changes that are included in the Argon Queen update. Of course, we will have more details in our patch notes and please note that these are subject to change as they are under development/implementation/testing.

In next week's patch, archers will have a larger target hit box for several skills along with a few other tweaks. The cool down time of all pre level 60 instance dungeons will be decreased to 10 minutes (5 minutes when using the Instance Matching System) and we will remove the party disband option to discourage unnecessary and random party disband occurrences.

The required amount of Practicum and Dire Badge to obtain glyph boxes will be decreased in Temple of Temerity. Also the incorrect stats on ice/fire items from Kelsaik's Nest hardmode instance have been adjusted accordingly (link to the detailed thread).

Other convenience tweaks include auto-dismount when trying to gather, climb or enter an instance, addition of general (world) and role play chat channels, and being able to use mounts in certain areas where you couldn't before.

We will have the full patch notes before the patch is released next week.

"Other changes with the August update will be the availability of all level 58 and below items as item remodel templates, decrease in cool down time in all pre-60 instances and more."

I hope this is on next week's schedule too.

This makes me fairly happy, but could you possibly clarify? It would be nice to know what the new badge requirements will be.

Stuns are actually not affected, what was nerfed was the flinch rate on some of the combo attacks and the knockdown rate of overhand strike.
